Chairman’s Message

This year marks the 26th year since the first AV Show was held in Malaysia in 1994.  It is undoubtedly the longest running AV Show in the Asean region, and,  I was informed, although there was no way to verify the fact, that it is the third longest running AV Show in the world.

We are also pleased to note that the and several other audio websites have once again undertaken to officially promote the KL International AV Show  2019.

Through this association and the many other venues of advertising and promotion we hope to be able to provide a strong media support not only for the KL International AV Show but also to further  spread the unique message of music and movies to a greater segment of the Malaysian public.

Also crucial to note this year is that the official venue for the KL International AV Show has changed, yet once again and is now at The Vistana Hotel, Kuala Lumpur Titiwangsa located at No.9 Jalan Lumut, Off Jalan Ipoh.

A compact yet modern and efficient running business hotel, The Vistana Hotel  is thoroughly equipped to host the KL International AV Show with its 12 function rooms , 1 Banquet room and up to 360 units of ideally sized bedrooms.  The exhibit rooms are located on levels 1,2,3 and 5 and are easily accessible rooms one atop the other.

One of the many YTL selection of fine hotels which include the J.W. Marriott that hosted the previous KL International AV Shows from 2001 -2016, The Vistana will undoubtedly prove to be an ideal venue for the KL International AV Show 2019 and hopefully many more years to come.

As such for this year, exhibitors and visitors alike will be able to experience the same, if not higher level of convenience as far as the Hotel’s and the organisers level of services are concerned.

That aside I am also pleased to announce that the eighth edition of our limited edition Commemorative CD will once again be given away to every paying visitor to the KL International AV Show 2019.

From a technology point of view the 4K UHD technology continues to grow as the availability of 4K UHD Bluray Discs grows.  That  fact alone will undoubtedly fuel the already fast developing 4K display market in both the UHDTV and UHD projection sector.  Equally important is the recent surge of availability of sub RM6,000 4K projectors that firmly placed UHD projectors in the crucial middle mass market.

In any event whether you are in the market for a new turntable or  valve  stereo amplifier or the latest in digital  surround sound home theatre systems or a big  screen super high resolution TV or projector, you are assured of finding it at the KL International AV Show 2019 .

As most of our exhibitors will tell you, if its AV we have got it!

While there will always be super expensive state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment for the lucky and rich, good home entertainment products as you will witness in the KL International AV Show,  are no longer the privilege of the rich few.
